The Cleveland Institute of Art has had profound influence on the vocabularies, styles, and dialogs in art over its 136-year history. In connection to CIA’s thematic year of craft titled ThinkCraft, Reinberger Gallery presents ThinkCraft: Fresh Takes, an exhibition of artwork by a selection of CIA alumni whose works focus on issues facing contemporary craft. As the definition of “craft” expands its reach from the traditional handmade to areas such as social practice, performance, and commercial design, we find ourselves confronted with works that deny simple categorization. The diverse array of artists represented in Fresh Takes refuse to be defined in basic terms, and offer a glimpse into the rich complexity of what it means to be a maker today.

Participating artists include: Pamela Argentieri, Jessica Calderwood, Lisa Clague, Nate Cotterman, Chris Gentner, Kirk Lang, N2 Clay (Nicci Winrock and Neal Barman), Leana Quade, Kari Russell-Pool, Kevin Snipes, Demi Thomloudis, Thaddeus Wolfe.

Exhibition Hours:

Monday-Thursday: 10am-5pm
Friday: 10am-9pm
Saturday and Sunday: 12-5pm
Closed: November 22-25
